Purchasing or selling an energy project is one of the most significant transactions in an energy company's life cycle. Our deep experience assisting energy clients in the acquisition of facilities is well recognized in the sector. We have successfully counseled clients on the acquisition and divestiture of numerous types of facilities, including wind, solar, nuclear, and other power-generating facilities, metering infrastructure, automated meter reading (AMR) facilities, sophisticated computer information systems for billing and customer information, and coal unit trains. Our attorneys also assist clients in the design and development of leases and purchase options associated with various types of facility commitments.
We have played significant roles in several transactions involving the merger of energy industry companies. Our team has substantive experience in relevant areas of law that add value at every stage of such transactions — including large-scale “bet the company” deals. In addition to providing legal advice on these transactions, we add value by counseling you extensively on business matters, including identifying and evaluating acquisition candidates, maximizing value when selling, and minimizing risks when buying. We regularly represent public and private companies, private equity and venture capital funds, investment banks, and others in complex transactions.
